How to pay in your fundraising monies
So you’ve raised your cash – thank you! All you need to do now is pay in the money raised, bearing in mind our guidance regarding cash handling below.
Please do not send cash through the post. Instead, there are a number of ways you can pay in your money raised:
1. Online: Pay your money in via our website. When asked include details about when and how the money was raised.
2. Paying-in slip: If you work for a Fire and Rescue Service your fire station or office may have a Charity paying-in book you can use. Bank your money, using your paying in book, at any branch of Barclays Bank.
Once you have banked your income please complete our Monies Return Form to help us track your payment and thank you appropriately.
If needed you can request a paying-in slip from our Customer Care Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01256 366 566.
If you do not have a local branch of Barclays Bank please contact us using the details above for alternative ways to pay in.
3. Cheque: Please complete the monies return form so we are able to track your payment and thank you appropriately. Send your cheque, made payable to ‘The Fire Fighters Charity’ and the form to The Fire Fighters Charity, Level 6 Belvedere, Basing View, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 4HG.
There are a number of golden rules when dealing with Charity money, so here’s everything you need to know.
- Under Charity law, all donations in money or goods become the property of the Charity from the moment of giving, and all funds raised for a charity must go to that charity.
- Money should be counted and signed for by two people (aged over 16) in a secure environment on the Double Signature Form. Please contact our Customer Care Team for more information on email@example.com or 01256 366566.
- Money should be banked in the Charity’s bank account within three days of the event.
- No money should be left unattended, taken home by individuals, or held in a non-Charity bank or building society account.
- If you are using collection buckets, these must have sealed lids. The seals should only be broken when counting the money with two people present.
- Only those aged 16 or over should be collecting money in public.
- Nobody should be unreasonably pressured into donating to the Charity.
